Times are tough, especially for Pemba, who had only married Dawa on 25 January 2014. It was love marriage. They had vowed to be with one another for years and years to come, but unfortunately, it only lasted for five months.
''Please Pray for us'' were the last words of Dawa, as told by Pemba. The expedition team had completed the Kanchenjunga expedition on April 18. But on April 19, as per the request of Chhanda, the other two mountaineers hesitantly agreed to climb another peak nearby. ''As to whatever I heard, the weather conditions were also not great, still they went ahead. While descending, Chhanda slipped and in seeing that Ningtemba and Dawa tried their best to save her, but in the process lost their lives as well, as they rolled down hundreds of feet below,'' said Pemba.
the dead body can be found, it would be great, but I do not think so,
it can be traced,'' said Pemba. Helicopters have also been used to
spot the body, but to no avail. The family has already performed his
last rites as well.
